South of Ashford Garden Community

The South of Ashford Garden Community (SAGC) will be the thread which fastens together a series of distinct neighbourhoods emerging amongst the existing communities to the South of Ashford over the next thirty years and beyond.

By providing good governance and a commitment to long-term stewardship, the SAGC will guide decision making on sustainable transport networks, green spaces, high quality landscaping and community facilities for the benefit of both new and existing residents.

Priority will be given to pedestrian friendly spaces, inclusive venues and carbon neutral living using sustainable technologies where possible, whilst promoting healthy lifestyles and community leadership.

In 2020, Ashford Borough Council adopted a Vision and Strategy which includes a 5 year action plan for the Garden Community. Since then, key partners have been working to carry out this plan in consultation with residents.
